Hi Bugzilla

I am experiencing a problem with the screensaver in x11-wm/cinnamon ( 	x11/cinnamon-screensaver). The problem is that the screensaver will not unlock when I put in my password, instead it says 'Incorrect password'.

I am not sure which info to add, other then I am running 10.2 on amd64 and I have tried pkg upgrade -F.

Please feel free to contact me for mere info or test of an solution.

Regards Stig

I'm seeing the same in CURRENT, as a workaround I switch to the console (crt+shit+1) and kill the process.

Any idea about what might be the cause?

Sorry I have no idea.

I don't know if it helps, but the error is the same when I choose to lock the screen.
